I remember being transported to this new world it seemed like. I remember seeing a brightly colored dome, spires, and living a whole life somewhere else. I remember being clothed in simple garb. The feeling of love was enveloping all around me. There was no fear or sorrow whatsoever. I saw colors that seem to mix together in glimmering iridescence. It was pure joy and happiness. It felt more real than anything I've experienced on earth. I did not want to leave and I was thrown back into my body it seemed. I was so upset because I was ready to go.
